    Hot'n'humid here again -- we are talking around 90 F during the daytime -- I thought we were not in Texas any more -- thanks goodness there are some strong winds going on.

    Oleg Cassini Black Tie for me today -- a nicely fresh chypre with osmanthus start, lasts for ever.

    In honor of Day 1 of Roland Garros (French Open Grand Slam tennis tournament) I am in Lacoste Pour Femme. Rene Lacoste played in the 1920s, and besides being famous for his tennis, he also invented the Crocodile shirt (now Lacoste/Izod) for comfort on the court. There, that is your history lesson for the day. I love it when fragrances have a history that allows blending of my passions

    Good morning, you sweet things. I’m feeling all squishy and soft in Guerlain’s super-soft With Love. I should be wearing Champs Elysees in honor of the French farmers who have filled that avenue with plants today, but that scent doesn’t do much for me.

    Is this the week I get control of my schedule? Control always seems to be just around the next bend. Am I the only one with this perspective?

    I used to wear Lacoste Pour Femme years ago, and adored it! You smell fresh cello, and I also love absorbing some history via fragrance!!! Have a GREAT day!

    My own SOTD is a continuation from yesterday...an unlikely new passion...the grand fruity patchouli of them all ~

    Ooh, I was sure I posted yesterday! Anyway, I spent the afternoon in London meeting a friend. I wore a tiny spritz of Penhaligon's Lily and Spice, to keep as much skin real estate as possible for any available 'fume sampling. And sample we did! We spent some time in Dover Street Market spraying and sniffing all the Commes Des Garçons, discovering wonderful things like 'San Fran Hipster in a Hot Tub', 'Hamster' and 'Brand New Macbook In Polystyrene Casing'. I wore Champaca back out into the hottest day of the year so far (working on the highest cost per spritz principle).

    Which all goes towards saying my SOTD is CDG x Stephen Jones, no longer from a sample!

    I'm one of the early birds on BN today too. Had to get up at 5.30 to take the " work bus" to work. The ordinary routes only start going from around 12 today...and that would be a little bit too late for work ( start at 8) So,the result was a 45 minute defenitely not taking the shortcut...And then had to wait for an hour before my shift started. I brought breakfast and a magazine to kill some time.Sotd was Chergui, sotE is Pleasures. This reminds me of my Mom and suddenly kind of missed her,so I decided it could be my sotE. Besides I need a fresh scent after work, to keep me awake!

    YAWN......I did sleep late and it was marvelous!

    I feel like wearing a Serge Lutens today, something out of character for me though. I got it! Fleurs d'Oranger, from a generous sample. (I may have to add a touch of La Myrrhe, to make it more "me".)

    That Paris "Farmers' Street Market" is wonderful! I realize that the US is huge in comparison and wish we had more locally-grown produce here... other than a co-op and the local farmers' market all the produce is trucked in from god only knows where for all the grocery stores, and we only have two or three tiny independent stores that stock locally grown. It's a shame, really, as there could be a great leap in quality and less energy resources wasted to truck "sturdy but bland" stuff in.

    And yes, control of the schedule, of paperwork, of... it's elusive!

    OH YEAH... My SOTD is Caron Bellodgia EDT over the still-there drydown of Xerjoff Shingl (the sweet ambery musk is still floating up through the Bellodgia!)

    I'm wearing, and really enjoying, AA Rosa Magnifica. I bought this blind several years ago and regretted the buy, but over time I've come to grudgingly accept it and now, actually like it.

    Last summer I smelled Chamade for the first time and was struck immediately that it smelled something like Rosa Magnifica. The common note, it seems, is a prominent hyacinth note. I don't really think of Rosa Magnifica as one of my rose fragrances but just enjoy it for itself.

    My condolences to those suffering from extreme heat in any part of the globe. As much as I've been complaining about the cold and practically-non-stop rain here, I prefer it to heat. One can pile on the clothing, but can only take off so much.

    SoTAfternoon... Xerjoff Dhajala... which definitely has that exotic vibe about it, a floriental with notes that to my nose resemble J. Peterman's E.M. Rajasthan (but with apparently higher-quality ingredients) and a warm, sweet, amberic/balsamic drydown.

    I was at the beach all day, got a really nice tan and sand all over my body...I still keep picking little pieces of sand out of my hair. I love hot days at the beach so much, because when I come home the best part is spraying on a cool spritz of fragrance.

    This morning it was Magnolia Romana by Eau d' Italie (from a sample), which was not what I expected it to be.



    Well, it doesn't smell like magnolia to me. So...

    Tonight I think (after my aloe vera cooling gel soaks in) it'll be one of my Sunday evening standards:

    Serge Noire by Serge Lutens




    And Petra Ichor, I'm super jealous...I've always wanted to go to London and if I do I will most definitely make it to the Dover Street Market to gaze upon all of those wonderful CdG's that I love so much. Did they have those new ones that CdG collaborated with that designer with...the small, dollhouse-like pink and white bottles...I can't remember the name of them now...??
